Please Make it Pain Free!
How often do we want to cry, “God, please make it pain free!” The zone of God’s rank and order may not be a pain-free zone. The relationships God puts us in may be for the purpose of causing the friction that burns off the things that cannot come into harmony with the destiny of Jesus. David dodged javelins and John Mark had to dodge Paul. Steel sharpens steel. (Gal.4:19)
